Data URI inside a post?


Can you have/use a Data URI inside a message post? If yes then how?

Re: Data URI inside a post?


Yes. I do it all the time.

First, I use tinypng.com to decrease the file size as much as possible.

Then, I drag the pic into here:
http://dataurl.net/#dataurlmaker

Note: The file size needs to be very small. You won't be able to do this with large photos.

Do you use the img tag or url tag inside the post?

edit: nevermind, I figured it out but it didn't help... on to my next idea...

img

The only reason I can see for it to not work is if the file size is too big.

Edit to add: Unless you're trying to bypass the thing for logged out lurkers.

Re: Data URI inside a post?


Different backgrounds for different posts in the message field is what I am working on. So far I am missing the correct targeting for it to work like I want it to.

The first idea won't work since it would be a part of the actual post. Now I am thinking of an external CSS file...

I don't understand what you're trying to accomplish, but it sounds like it has something to do with this measure Thor recently put in place to keep our ads. If I'm right, why don't you just wait until he gets back from his trip and gets through my to-do list?

I was thinking of using the sheet music for each topic (faded out) as a post background image.

My first approach was flawed and I gave up on it. My second approach is with an external CSS file but I have not figured out the targeting for it yet.

#post293790 .postlistpostbody

You can get each post number from the 'link to this post' link. Keep in mind that .postlistpostbody is a <span>, which is an inline element.
